This oil on canvas mural by Fletcher Martin entitled “Discovery” was painted for the Kellogg post office in 1941. It was one of the winners of the 48-State post office mural competition. “The original mural, depicting 2 miners carrying another on a stretcher, was deemed too depressing by the locals.”
